Three Persons Allegedly Hospitalised After Consuming Fayose’s Expired Rice
Three persons in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, and one each in Ido and Ikole, all in Ekiti State are now receiving treatment in hospitals after the weekend rice meal that turned awry.
During a visit to a private clinic in Ado-Ekiti where one of the victims is being treated, relatives of the victim said the student (name withheld) started complaining of stomach pain four hours after taking the meal. The same symptom was reported in the victims at Ikole-Ekiti and Ido-Ekiti.
The victims, all students, said they were some of the beneficiaries of rice distributed by the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Ayo Fayose, to members of his party as part of campaign strategy ahead of the June 21 governorship election in Ekiti State.
The distributed rice according to the Thailand Agency for Food Quality and Control, (TAFQC) is said to have expired since 2006, but was imported into Nigeria by a Nigerian business man, Chief Udeh Ikem, who is the Chairman of Udeh and Sons Holdings in collaboration with some corrupt Thai officials, which was eventually distributed by Fayose.
Neither Mr. Fayose nor anyone in his camp has responded to the weighty allegations.
